This policy applies to all information collected by us, whether through the Sites, Pebblebee products or otherwise.
HOW WE COLLECT YOUR INFORMATION
In general, you can visit our Sites without disclosing any personal information, but some offers, services, or portions of our Site may only be accessible to you if you provide us with certain information. The only personal information we collect about you is provided by you voluntarily or as described below under “Information Collected from Your Use of the Site.” Pebblebee does not collect biometrics or sensitive information relating to health, race, gender, or other special category data.
Information We Collect. If you place an order for Pebblebee products, you will need to provide us with your first and last name, email and shipping addresses and in some instances, you may also need to provide your phone number (collectively, “Personal Information”). We may also ask you to provide Personal Information about another person for whom you may be seeking our services, such as a family member or employee, and to affirm that you have permission to provide Personal Information for that person. We take reasonable steps to ensure that your contact information is accurate, complete, current, and otherwise reliable.
As part of our services, you will need to register within the Pebblebee mobile application. In order to complete registration you will need to provide your email address so that we can verify your account. We do not identify you to other users or make your account information available to any third party in any way that could identify you without your prior express consent. When you activate a Pebblebee product using our mobile application, the product’s unique identifier, called a “MAC address” will be associated with your account. You will have an option to add your name and phone number to your account, but are not obligated to do so.
In order for Pebblebee to help you locate your items, we will have to collect data about the location of the Pebblebee product, as well as data about the location of the mobile device associated with our product (the “Location Data”). While the Pebblebee application is running on your device, it periodically transmits Location Data. This Location Data cannot be used by other users or third parties in order to trace your location. Any archiving of Location Data within Pebblebee’s servers will be anonymized.
We may also collect information, strictly at your discretion, for analysis of employment applications. If you apply for employment opportunities with Pebblebee through the Site, such information will only be used for purposes of determining your eligibility and qualifications for employment.
Pebblebee does not collect or maintain any payment information. All payments are processed through PayPal, Shopify or other third party payment processors that Pebblebee may engage from time to time. When you provide payment information on this Site, that information will be processed through the PayPal, Shopify or other payment portal. All payment information and transactions are subject to PayPal’s, Shopify’s or other applicable policies.
Information Collected from Your Use of the Site. We may use website analytics tools or other technologies to collect information about you from your use of this Site. This information may be combined with other information that you choose to submit to us. This information may also be merged into aggregate information about site visitors and traffic. We may use third-party analytics tools to distinguish and analyze user behavior.
Log Files. We collect anonymous and technical information from your computer, including your Internet Protocol address, data about your computer or other device, the type of browser or operating system your device uses, the programs, services, and version of software you use, and the address of any linking site, when you request a web page while visiting the Site. We use this information for statistical purposes, to ensure that our Site will appear and function appropriately on your computer, to determine which site referred you to our Site, and to personalize your access to our Site or conduct our own analyses and research to improve our programs, products, services, and content. We will not sell, rent, or otherwise convey said information to any third party. We do not currently use a third party to collect and analyze information, but we reserve the right to use third parties to collect and analyze said information in the future. If you do not agree with Pebblebee collecting and using your anonymous and technical information as described in this paragraph, simply discontinue use of this site or contact us as described under “Controlling Your Personal Information.”

Some pages of our the website and our e-mails may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit us, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an email and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).

- For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.
- With your consent.
We employ commercially appropriate and reasonable safeguards both online and offline to maintain the security, confidentiality, and integrity of information that we collect about you.

Please note, however, that no transmission of data over the Internet is 100% secure. While we employ reasonable measures to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not defeat those measures or use nonpublic Personal Information for improper purposes. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Sites or for the actions of third parties. The safety and security of your information also depends on you, and you are responsible for keeping your access to our Sites and the products confidential and/or restricted.
